Old Brooklyn Stanford Homes Project Being Deconstructed/Demo-ed

A big day tommorrow as we received confirmation today that tomorrow the Stanford Homes project will begin to be taken down. Lighting Demolition has won the bid and from the City of Cleveland and will be managing a deconstruction/demolition to try to harvest as much of the 2x4s and plywood etc... as possible.
The six partially constructed townhomes are located on Stanford Avenue just off of Pearl Road in between Memphis Avenue and State Road.
Due to personal financial problems and then the market tanking this project stalled shortly after it began in 2004. By 2005 the project was cold and the last three years has been a struggle to watch it go through foreclosure and to try to force the maintenance and security of the properties.
We made multiple attempts and taking potential investors through the properties as well as trying to play match maker with the bank, owner and investors. But, the economic conditions and the specifics of this project were too difficult to succeed in seeing the project completed.
Tomorrow is a victory for the neighbors as they've been very patient in calling in requests when needed for re-boarding and maintenance.
